Central schools tighten residency requirements

The Central School Board has voted unanimously to tighten its residency rules for students, including a new requirement that prior to the start of every school year, families who rent will have to present updated information to prove their leases are still valid.
The Advocate reports parents or guardians will have to present a driver's license or state-issued identification.
If a parent is shown to actually have a home elsewhere, then their children will be dropped from the rolls of Central schools.
Superintendent Michael Faulk said Monday the paperwork requirements are an effort to stop children who live outside of the district from attending Central schools, a problem in this growing suburban school district, which has more than 4,000 students.
